ROUGH CUT (no reporter narration) STORY: Hundreds of evangelical leaders gathered in Manhattan on Tuesday (June 21) for what was touted as a "conversation" with presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. Tony Perkins, the President of the conservative Family Research Council, told reporters after the meeting that evangelicals and other social conservatives are leaning towards Trump as a "champion" of some of their causes, saying that some conservatives still have questions about candidate Trump but that the "conversation" which started on Tuesday will continue until the general election in November. The meeting came as the Trump campaign announced it had created a new executive board to advise the presumptive GOP nominee on issues that are important to evangelicals and people of faith.
